Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook had his eighth straight triple-double, and Oklahoma City rolled past the Grizzlies 117-95 on Thursday night.
Westbrook finished with 15 points, 15 assists and 13 rebounds. He now has the longest triple-double streak of his career and is one short of Wilt Chamberlain’s NBA record of nine straight set in 1968.
Westbrook had two previous streaks of seven triple-doubles, both during his MVP-winning 2016-17 season, and Jordan had seven consecutive triple-doubles during the 1988-89 season.
Westbrook can tie Chamberlain on Saturday when the Thunder take on the Houston Rockets.
